Armed Svcs Cmte Chair Smith: Modly's subsequent decision to board the..Roosevelt & deliver a petty, obscenity-laced speech attacking Capt Crozier while the crew of the Roosevelt dealt with the COVID-19 outbreak should seriously call into question Modly's decision making ability

Modly'>Acting Navy Secretary Thomas Modly said he relieved Crozier of duty because the Captain did not use the proper chain of command

@USNavy  Capt. Brett Crozier was abruptly removed from the USS Theodore Roosevelt earlier this month by acting Modly'>Navy Secretary Thomas Modly, who resigned days later: #N13COVID19

The inside scoop on the Crozier letter appealing for help aboard the coronavirus stricken TR aircraft carrier. The letter was sent to 10 people, not 20-30 as Modly said. But it was still “unconventional.” By @DanLamothe  & @ShawnBoburg

"A defense official familiar with Modly's remarks offered his opinion of Modly's address, saying the acting secretary 'should be fired. I don't know how he survives this day'."

I still can’t over the fact that Modly flew 8,000 miles to Guam to give that speech.

NEW TONIGHT: ThomasModly's trip to Guam didn't just cost him his job. It cost taxpayers more than $243,000, the Navy estimates. The executive jet that Modly traveled in costs about $6,946.19 per flight hour, Navy says. Round-trip flight: Some 35 hours.

Modly calls @IgnatiusPost ⁩ at 1 am to explain why he fired Capt. Crozier, saying he wanted to act before Trump did, knowing that his predecessor was fired for getting "crossways with the president. I didn't want that to happen again."

Wow. Acting Navy Secretary ThomasModly has submitted his resignation a day after a leaked audio showed him calling the ousted commander of the USS Theodore Roosevelt "stupid" in an address to the ship's crew.

BREAKING: Less than 24 hours after being told by the Defense Secy to apologize to sailors on the USS Theodore Roosevelt for calling Capt. Brett Crozier “naive” & “stupid”, Acting Navy Secretary ThomasModly has resigned

Scoop: Acting Navy Secretary ThomasModly has submitted his resignation a day after a leaked audio showed him calling ousted commander of USS Theodore Roosevelt "stupid" in address to ship's crew, a US official and a former senior military official tell me.

We’re demanding an Inspector General Investigation because the ongoing Pentagon inquiry is a whitewash—framed to justify Modly’s decision. He should have waited for the facts before firing Crozier. He & Esper must be the ones held accountable.

Modly should be removed unceremoniously for these shocking remarks—especially after failing to protect sailors’ safety & health. He has betrayed their trust. DoD IG must immediately launch an investigation.
